The IIDA NPC Advocacy Committee’s annual community service project is called BRIDGE. Our intent is to connect communities in need with the talent and vision of our industry for meaningful impact.

This year BRIDGE connected with Mary’s Place Day Center, a Seattle-based organization providing homeless women a safe place to rest, build community, and find the resources they need. We’ve been designing a non-structural makeover in their downtown women’s day center for one special room that serves as a space of respite for women undergoing severe trauma. Our goal is to turn it into a sanctuary space where they feel safe, comfortable, and uplifted for a brief time while they recover from emotional or physical stress.

We are doing this by providing:

  • Dimmable, soft lighting
  • New acoustic ceiling tiles
  • New carpet
  • A soothing color palette
  • 3 new four-poster beds with beautiful drapes for visual, light and sound barrier
  • New blankets, pillows and sheets
  • Reupholstering the old podiatry chair
  • New storage and desk for the nurse
  • New bedside tables, and underbed storage

Look for us on Q13 News Sunday, May 7, at 10:00 pm.
